“How many sunsets have you seen, and how many have you forgotten?” is question that a young oracle in the performance SPARKS leaves hanging in the air after reading a grownup’s palm.
In the historical city council hall in central Roskilde, visitors are invited to take part in one-on-one sessions. Grownups are only allowed to listen – to the children and to their fortune. Before the children and visitors are brought together, Francesca Grilli and the poet Azurra d’ Agostino hold workshops on palm reading and poetic and political thinking.
